El Cafeito closed down exactly one year ago? I'm not going to lie but the surrounding community was devastated. Some people weren't sure why but others say it was because the owner of the building sold the property. It was disappointing because El Cafeito was one of the few decent establishments in the area. Traditional Puerto Rican breakfast and lunch mixed with some interesting mixes is sure to bring out a good mix of people.
A Facebook post by Charlotte Sahadeo says, "This is just the beginning of my dream business of Adorno's Boricua! I want to share with all easy and traditional Latino flavors for all. My vision is to incorporate the Latino culture in unconventional ways!" When I ate there today, the chef recommended the delicious black bean soup (pictured above) and wow...delicious. Hopefully the new Cafeito lives up to the old one.
